A skin care specialist once said, 'the décolletage is the woman's best real estate.' Whether this is true or sexist certain facts remain, a sexy, smooth, décolletage gets noticed and should be part of every woman daily beauty regiment.

For women of all ages, sallow, dull, or crepey skin can make the chest area or décolletage appear older than it is. Factor in side-sleeping where for hours at a time, your breasts are at battle with gravity leading to deeper lines in the neck and chest.

Luckily, there are advancements and solutions available to bring back the glow to the beautiful feminine décolletage. Dr. Lenny Hochstein, world renowned board-certified plastic surgeon based in Miami, Florida and owner of the city's newest state-of-the-art Hochstein MedSpa, and his team of licensed aestheticians, offer insights on how to achieve and maintain a sexy décolletage.

1. Go Topical

There are plenty of things women can do to prevent chest area skin from aging such as applying high-quality, medical-grade skin care products. There are plenty of wrinkle creams on the market. The key is to look for ones with alpha and beta hydroxy acids, retinol, Vitamin C and E, and growth factors. These will reduce the appearance of wrinkles. "This is great for prevention and maintenance. Using creams in your 20's and 30's really does help skin retain elasticity and its ability to produce collagen," explains Larisa Belyakova, Hochstein MedSpa licensed aesthetician.

2. Consider Lasers

Lasers will certainly offer that healthy glow, since they are the most powerful tool to address both discoloration and texture imperfections.

"One of the lasers we have had success with in the chest region is the HALO treatment, the world's first hybrid fractional laser. It's strong! Results to skin tone and texture are visible after the first treatment," explains Dr. Lenny Hochstein who prides himself on being incredibly selective about the results-driven treatments he offers. "The HALO is a type of a fractional laser which allows us to obtain optimal results with reduced healing time," he adds.

There are other options as well. "The other device used for chest rejuvenation is called BBL (broad band light). This treatment is the most effective on the market for clearing up sun damage spots and reducing redness," adds Jenya Titova, Hochstein's certified Physician's Assistant who vast expertise in lasers spans 12 years.

An issue of concern to women are stretch marks to the breast area. "Another laser often used on the chest area is E-matrix. This technology reduces the appearance of scars and stretch marks on the breast," Jenya adds.

3. Try a Chemical Peel and/or a Microdermabrasion.

If the skin itself is supple, microdermabrasion could work very well to address skin elasticity, texture, tone and overall appearance. It's a less expensive option than lasers. Chemical peels work at the cellular level, smoothing the fine lines in the chest area with very little downtime. There are varying strengths available so it is very important to have an experienced person administer peels. Microdermabrasion and peels are usually recommended in packages of 3 or 4, performed several weeks apart.

4.  Hydrafacial

This is of the newest treatments that brings out the healthy radiance and glow to the skin of the décolletage area. "It is a high- tech equipment operated procedure that includes several steps, such as deep cleansing, exfoliation, antiaging light treatment and application of powerful antioxidants. Well hydrated and nourished skin on the chest is the immediate and lasting result of this treatment," explains Hochstein MedSpa Licensed aesthetician, Capri Colello.

5.  Micro-Needling

Micro-needling is a process where a small roller is rolled over the skin creating tiny punctures in the top skin layer. This phase of the treatment triggers a wound healing response in the body. Collagen levels are boosted as the skin regenerates itself leading to skin thickening, scars fading and smoothing of fine lines. Peptides and antioxidant serums are applied and massaged into the skin at the end. "What's interesting to note about micro-needling is that the skin is essentially put into a healing, rejuvenation mode lasting for several months after the first session takes place. Skin looks better over time. To maintain results it's advised to repeat the treatment at least 3-4 times," advises Hochstein.

6. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

Microneedling described above, can be enhanced with a very powerful collagen building treatment using your own plasma. "The treatment requires that we draw a small blood sample to extract the concentrated platelet cells out of it. These cells have a natural ability of healing by building new elastic and collagen layer. Fine lines and wrinkles on the chest respond wonderfully to this procedure, with no discomfort, side effects or downtime" says Dr. Hochstein.  

7. Get Smart about Sunscreen.

Regardless of what treatment option you choose optimal skin protection is key. "You go through a series of treatments. The last thing you want to do is damage skin and get into this cycle of damage, treat, damage treat," explains Dr. Hochstein. "You can't invest $6000 on skin treatments and think a $9.00 bottle of basic sunscreen is going to protect you," he adds. Any physician will suggest using a sunscreen that offers broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. "The best results are found when the patient 'protects the procedure' and takes preventative measures recommended by their skin care professional," he recommends.
